New York Univ., NY. Center for Field Research and School Services.
Under Corrective Mathematics Services for Disadvantaged Pupils in Non-Public Regular Day Schools, 1969-1970, funded under ESEA Title I, corrective mathematics services were to be provided by licensed teachers from the New York City Board of Education for approximately 16,100 children from poverty areas who attended 146 non-public regular day schools. The children were to be for participation in the program on the basis of their retardation in mathematics. Corrective services were to be provided as an in-school program during the regular hours of the non-public schools. The objectives of the program were: (1) to raise educational aspirations of pupils selected for the program; (2) to raise the level of mathematical competency; (3) to increase school achievement; (4) to improve children's self-image and school attitude; and, (5) to improve daily attendance. The evaluation objectives were: (1) to examine the degree to which the proposed objectives of the program have been achieved; (2) to examine and appraise the procedures employed in the program to achieve the stated objectives; (3) to obtain some conclusions regarding the viability of the program; and, (4) to present recommendations for improving the effectiveness of the Corrective Mathematics Services Program.
